    Has anybody seen this yet? Has a wide release today.

    IMO Chau deserves all the praise she is getting and may be my personal winner in the Supporting Actress category. The rest of the film however is pretty meh. I liked the first half but after they go to **MINOR SPOILER** Norway, I felt the film became really messy and didn’t have a clear point.

    I’m excited to see this. Chau looks amazing from the clips I’ve seen.

    (Hopefully) seeing this this weekend. I’m so excited, even though the reviews are so-so. I’m a huge Alexander Payne fan and I’ve been watching a lot of interviews with Hong Chau lately. I cant wait.

    As previously mentioned, Hong Chau is great, but the rest of the movie is garbage. This was one of my most anticipated films of the year because the premise is so original, but it really falls flat in the second half.

    I had a hunch this will be the winner for original screenplay for this year. Alexander Payne’s track record plus the premise made this a frontrunner in my eyes. I was never so wrong, it seems, although I’m happy that Hong Chau is in the running.

    I enjoyed the movie. The movie was not near as good when Hong Chau wasn’t on screen. Her character and performance elevated the film so much. She is an amazing actress. I could tell that a lot of the film was edited down and Payne didn’t get to say everything he wanted too. I think the reviews are a bit harsh and while not perfect, it is solid. Damon was fine but he’s been better. Wigg was hardly in the movie. Waltz was surprisingly hilarious. The movie lacks a structure in parts, which is why I suspect that it’s reviews aren’t great. However, I wanted to see Hong Chau’s character just live her daily life for the whole movie. Those were the best part for me. I didn’t really care about Paul. Chau stole the show. She’d be a worthy winner. Right now she’ll be battling Haddish and Vinaite as my personal winner.

    Also, Payne has been watching a lot of great TV. The film had some fantastic TV actors in small roles and I wish they had more to do.

    Hong Chau was great in this, but am I the only one who was truly impressed by Christoph Waltz in this film? I thought he was a truly fantastic scene-stealer!
